To the motorists of Cardiff (and elsewhere). Please remember these points…
- Cyclists cannot stop instantly.
- WE ARE NOT TELEPATHIC – use your indicators!
When you’ve done something stupid (like a 180 at a mini-roundabout, outside a school, without signalling), and a cyclist has had to take evasive action to avoid a crash, don’t look at the cyclist with an expression that seems to say “what are you doing?”
Remember, you’re nice and safe in a steel shell. Cyclists aren’t. If we collide, the chances are that you’ll barely feel it, and I’ll be dead.
As the UK authorities like to say to drivers “THINK!”
